Big Hungry

Private, Stocked Waters

The Big Hungry River is Up-Close Outfitter Fly Fishing’s pride and joy.  One of Henderson County’s prized trout streams, our private section of the Big Hungry is the most pristine, private trout stream we fish.  Located southeast of Hendersonville, the Big Hungry is home to many native and stocked Brook, Rainbow, and Brown trout.

Our guide service has invested a great deal of time and resources to stock this private section of the Big Hungry with trophy-sized Rainbow and Brown trout.  Up-Close Outfitters Fly Fishing has worked with a local biologist and trout farms to stock the perfect amount of trout to sustain an ideal fishery.  Through this scientific stocking program and our exclusive access, we can offer a truly amazing experience for our clients, which is second to none in North Carolina.  This stream is our most requested stretch of water for wade fishing trips and stays productive year-round.  The dry fly fishing here is awesome and can result in fifty-fish days!  Visit our Facebook Page to view recent fishing tours.

After passing through a locked gate, you will have access to over a mile of a private stream located within a 3,600-acre estate.   With plenty of room to practice your casts and relaxing camp sites where your guide will prepare a first-class hot meal, it is truly a way to get back to nature.  Bears, turkey, and deer are common sites while fly fishing in this remote forested area.
